National Workrights Institute

National Workrights Institute The National Workrights Institute was founded in January 2000 by the former staff of the American Civil Liberties Union’s National Taskforce on Civil Liberties in the Workplace.

The Institute’s creation grew from the belief that the workplace is a critical front in the fight for human rights and the belief that this effort required the creation of a new organization dedicated to human rights in the workplace. The Institute’s mission is to be the one human rights organization which commits its entire effort to workplace issues. The Institute’s goal is to improve the legal protection of human rights in the workplace. We believe that the core problem is not that workplace rights laws are inadequately enforced, but that these laws, even on paper, are grossly inadequate. The Institute’s strategy is to select a small number of issues where there is both the potential of creating substantial long range improvement in workplace human rights and a current opportunity for constructive engagement.

With a new corporate "get out of jail free" card, are class action lawsuits soon to be a thing of the past?

The company promised her a free cell phone if she signed up for its wireless service. Then they charged her sales tax on the “free” phone. Concepcion couldn’t afford to sue; just talking to a lawyer would have cost her more than she was cheated out of. However, Concepcion was only one of thousand

Biometrics and Human Rights

Biometric technology is growing at an incredible rate. The use of biometric technology, such as electronic iris scans, has the potential to increase public safety by providing better control to sensitive areas like nuclear power plants. Even retail companies are getting in on the trend.

Biometrics opens the door to identity theft on a scale that’s almost beyond comprehension.

Daily Kos: The Mother of All Identity Theft

Biometrics opens the door to identity theft on a scale that’s almost beyond comprehension.

Imagine the consequences if a terrorist gained access to the control room of a nuclear power plant, an air traffic control center, or an oil refinery. Actually, you don’t need much imagination; it would look like the disaster at Fukushima Daiichi.

Fat Cat Teachers?

A great Daily Show clip that showcases our nation's problem with "fat cat" teachers. Or is that just another myth FOX news created?

f this is how public school teachers in Wisconsin live now, what will their lives be like after Walker cuts their pay?

Can Social Media Can Get You Fired?

Until we have better laws, you'd be wise to remember that everything you say on the internet can be found and your employer might be reading it....

Indeed, it can. You may want to think twice before posting about the horribleness of your job or your boss' lack of basic managerial skills.

The Looming NFL Lockout: Who's to Blame?

In most labor disputes, it’s not difficult to pick sides. Just support the little guy. It’s easy to root for a worker trying to raise a family on $30,000 a year when he's struggling to get a 5% raise from a CEO that makes millions. Yet the looming NFL lockout is not your typical labor dispute. The

I find it very sad indeed that there has been no activity on this page for over seven years.
Sadly not much has changed since Mr. Maltby's book came out nearly a decade ago. 49 out of 50 states are still considered "at will" with us needing to check our rights at the door once we go to work. My home state of Illinois did become the fourth state at the time to make it illegal to be denied a job based on credit history. It's ludicrous to do this anyway because anyone can figure out that it takes a steady income in order to maintain good credit.
